The iconic First Lady of the Jackson clan – second to LaToya, of course – has a new book and tour to pimp. So off you go, Piers. Let’s hook her up and get all up close and personal.
Janet Jackson has enjoyed an immense career spanning close to four decades, sold over 100 million records and now she’s releasing her first book True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself – a self-help book with a heavy dose of Janet‘s own personal experiences, co-authored with biographer David Ritz. The book sheds light on Janet‘s battle with her weight, self-esteem and body image.
Here in an interview with Piers Morgan, the intensely private Ms Jackson opens up for the first time about depression, calling out LaToya as a “grand diva”, and why she used to repeatedly bang her head against the wall.
Put the kettle on, ready a cup of peppermint tea and watch the works here:
Janet‘s book True You is out in the States this week. No word on when a local publisher will run a batch for our shelves.
Ms Jackson‘s Number Ones tour – which she’s said to be her largest tour yet – just started in Philippines two weeks ago and is moving through Hong Kong and Taiwan this week.
